Chiefs Close To Worst Run In A Decade
Pressure is building on Kaizer Chiefs head coach, Steve Komphela, and anything less than a victory on Wednesday will make their form the worst in a decade.
The Amakhosi take on Platinum Stars on Wednesday evening as they look to make sure that they don’t go six league games without a victory for the first time in 10 years, and Komphela will be hoping that his team can emerge victorious.
Chiefs haven’t won a league game since beating University of Pretoria 2-1 in April, losing three of their last five games in the Absa Premiership stretching back to the 3-1 defeat to Mamelodi Sundowns.
Since that run of six games between May 13th and September 20th 2006, Chiefs have only gone five matches without victory on five occasions, and Komphela will not be happy to know that two of those five runs have taken place since February.
It was current Maritzburg United head coach, Ernst Middendorp, who led the Glamour Boys on that six-game winless streak in ’06, and Chiefs’ former Team of Choice man, Komphela, will be eager to make sure his team don’t equal it on Wednesday.
Chiefs host Dikwena at 19h30 at FNB Stadium.
